I absolutely love to hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  I began looking online for trail reviews and other information and found that there was not much available.  Thus, Blue Ridge Hiker was born to provide quality hiking information for people regarding the trails in DuPont State Forest, Gorges State Park, and the Pisgah Ranger District of the Pisgah National Forest.  It is for hikers, bikers, and equestrians.

I have written a number of such trail reviews and am constantly adding to the number.  They are too many to list individually here, so I have included links below.  I have written all the trail reviews  on the site for the three areas and have taken some of the photos and videos.  This is an exciting resource for the outdoor enthusiast.  All the information on the website is free.

 I will have some books in the future that will appear here on my author's site.  Until then, allow me to recommend the following collections of individual trail reviews.
